I am a Chartered Accountant from India who is soon to move to Sydney and will be looking for mid-senior level positions in management accounting. My employer would most likely be a large business, mostly a household name.
In India, recruiters do not play a role beyond finding an interested candidate and coordinating between the employer and the prospective employees for interview dates. One generally does not meet a recruiter.
My experience, on the other side of the table, while hiring in India is that the recruiter emails you a dozen resumes at a time after having ascertained the candidates interest in the opening over a very shot call. Recruiters do not filter resumes for quality or credibility expect for a very broad match making assessment.
Reckon the profile of recruiter in Sydney is fairly expansive.
For an interview (with the employer), I would wear noting less than a 2 piece business suit with a tie.
In case one were to meet a recruiter in Sydney, how should one dress - same as one would while going for an interview (business suit with a tie) or would a business shirt and trousers suffice (+/- tie).
Is more casual dressing acceptable (full sleeve business shirt and jeans)?
